Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook until slightly softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chorizo and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the apples, half of the pecans and the parsley; season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, gently mix the chorizo mixture with the cornbread. Transfer to a buttered 9-by-12-inch baking dish, pressing lightly into place. Pour the chicken broth evenly over the mixture. Press the remaining pecans on top.
Bake the stuffing until lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
